cure fuse but they have only bed to fuel anti-government anger, now, egypt's defense minister warns the entire country may be nearing collapse, raising concerns the army may be called in to restore order. nbc's ayman mohyeldin is live for us in cairo. when i heard that warning from the egyptian military considering the past of egypt, was that the first warning sign that hey, the military may step in here regardless of whether president morsi asks or not? >> well, this is actually the second time in about a month and a half that they've issued these stern warnings. if you remember in early december, when there was the constitutional crisis when president morsi essentially gave himself unprecedented powers. that also triggered a wave of street protests. the military tried to keep tear distance from the politics but that's why they also are the subject of so much speculation that people are calling on them to intervene sometimes. and people are also afraid they may not just sit by and watch this political difference rip this country apart. the comments that came yesterday were extremely al
